    For anyone interesting in such things - I tried my triplus extension tubes on
    the 300d for the first time today.
    The kit lens does not work with it. Being short back focus it hits the front
    light baffle inside the tube. I had wondered about this and now I know. One
    would hope that genuine canon tubes would work. The triplus tubes could be
    modified by enlarging the opening in the baffle a few mm. The camera shop has
    not responded yet.

    eddie.m choreographed a chorus line of high-kicking electrons to spell
    Canon released new extension tubes that are supposed to be compatible
    with the EF-S mount, as presumably their old ones won't work either...

    Of course it doesn't work, it's a new lens mount. Since the lens only works
    with an EF-S mount camera, it stands to reason it will only work with
    tele-converters and extension tubes that are also EF-S compatible.
